You can have the entire NFL, MLB, NHL and NBA as your heroes. As for me. I’ll take the teachers. Every. Single. Time. The Underpaid, Under appreciated Teachers. The over achieving and full of love and passion for kids, Teachers. I say it’s time we change our priorities. When was the last time you you heard a Science teacher get a 5 year, multimillion dollar contract? A Math Teacher? An English teacher? Or how about a special ed teacher? The ones that work closely with the kinds of kids with the problems that end up in tragedies like Newtown. Never gonna happen, though it should. It really, really should.
Yeah. We need to make some changes. Make it harder to get violent video games. Ban Assault weapons and ammunition magazines higher than 10 and make anyone who wants a gun take a test for psychological stability. I’m an advocate for some kind of gun control and fear the repetition found in first person shooter games are impacting those with mental issues to carry out some fantasy they find in the content of those games.
It’s time for change.
Feel free to send this to a teacher in your life. Let them know they are loved.
